Waterstones Says

Columnist and actor Rhik Samadder’s unblinking archaeological dig into his own troubled past is a masterpiece of self-exploration that offers fresh insights into living with depression. ‘Samadder is a stubborn talent and a gifted storyteller’, writes the Sunday Times, ‘I Never Said I Love You is one of the most electric, enchanting, engrossing and energising memoirs of self-harm, self-loathing, grief, eating disorders, suicide – and sex – that you will read.’ We wholeheartedly agree.

"I'm in bed with my mother, in a Bangkok sex hotel. It is my 30th birthday, it is time for me to become a man, and I have grave worries about the kind of man I'm going to become."

On an unlikely backpacking trip, Rhik and his mother find themselves speaking openly for the first time in years. Afterwards, the depression that has weighed down on Rhik begins to loosen its grip for a moment - so he seizes the opportunity: to own it, to understand it, and to find out where it came from.

Through this begins a journey of investigation, healing and recovery. Along the way Rhik learns some shocking truths about his family, and realizes that, in turn, he will need to confront the secrets he has long buried. But through this, he triumphs over his fears and brings his depression into the light.

I Never Said I Loved You is the story of how Rhik learned to let go, and then keep going. With unique humour and honesty, he has created a powerfully rich, funny and poignant exploration of the light and dark in all of us.

“A beautiful surprise”

Not at all what I was expecting from Rhik Samadder, I fell in love with this. Somehow both deeply moving and entertaining.. It shouldn't be but it is and more besides. My favourite memoir, ever.
